The department of African American Studies Faculty Brown Bag Lunch Seminar aims to provide a forum for the presentation of new work by faculty. The conversations cut across disciplinary boundaries, reflect the expansive bibliography of African American Studies, and occasion opportunities for new and innovative thinking.
